THERE IS NOTHING more natural than hiking through nature barefoot. The soles of your feet and toes are wonderful sensory organs and the myriad of feelings from earth, grass, moss, pine-needles, and mud are wonderful. Many could not see hiking any other way.

HIKING BAREFOOT causes virtually no trail erosion since a bare foot makes much less of an imprint than a booted foot. Bare feet are therefore the environmentally sound choice for hiking.

THE BAREFOOT HIKERS are groups of people who enjoy hiking barefoot.

NEW TO BAREFOOT HIKING, then check out some of these resources to learn how to enjoy your barefoot hike.
